Electrical Engineer/Electrician

As an Electrical Engineer, I specialize in solving problems that are critical to keeping a project moving forward. As an Electrician, I focus on finding practical solutions that may be overlooked while working on complex projects. My technical skills and practical working experience bring a unique and balanced approach to team projects.
